I got in touch with the ever helpful Simon Miller for some top tips as he is always transporing is magnificent ancients collection. I have now sourced some self adhesive ferro sheet, and range of disc magnets.
Project Magnetise has now started. All new units will have them from intial build. I will be going back over the exisitng collection in a prioroty order , with most vulnerable units getting it doen first.
Here is the successful result of the application to the Naval Brigade last night
A little walk though in case you are interested:-
The disc magnets are 6mm diameter x 2mm depth
I used a 6mm wood bit in the Dremel (other power tools are available) flexible extension - just wear some eye protection and do it in a well ventilated space or wear face mask - MDF dust is not particularly nice.
My Dremel is hung from the wall , with the flexible extension down onto the work desk as it takes up less space.
Two holes in small bases - 4 in larger/heavier
bit of thick superglue in the hole
add the disc magnet and let things dry.
The A4 self adhesive sheet added to the box is pretty self explanatory , just make sure the box is clean before you stick it.
